Looking for substantive details on just how Republican frontrunner Donald Trump would get Mexico to pay for that wall? You don’t find them in Trump’s Wednesday policy speech, a top adviser told the Associated Press.

While the candidate is expected to broadly outline his foreign policy views, Walid Phares, one of Trump’s foreign policy advisers, said: “There will be no details in this speech.”

The highly anticipated speech is viewed as a testing ground for a more presidential Trump to break away from his bombastic persona. The real estate mogul has long been criticized for his antics on the campaign trail and being vague on specifics behind his cornerstone policies like building a U.S. border wall and banning Muslim immigration to the United States.

Trump called himself the party’s “presumptive nominee” after his five-state primary sweep on Tuesday night.
